I ♥ Menlo Park

Hi, I’m Anna Marie Pienaar from Menlo Park, Pretoria Accommodation.

MENLO PARK IS BEST KNOWN FOR being very centrally located to Shopping Centres and the University of Pretoria and the Pretoria Country Golf Club.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the Pretoria Country club, because of the beautiful gardens.

THE BEST PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT during October when the Jakarandas are blooming.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO go swimming, play tennis or play golf.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO visit the nice shopping Centres like Menlyn and Brooklyn.

I ♥ Menlo Park

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Cynthea’s, TRY THEIR fish dishes.

BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM Crawdaddy’s.
